('fixed', which in this case is a bit elaborate of a
description for what I did, 10/2003 by
The copy I got had zero-padding on both ends of nearly
all the tracks (bad DAE at some point?), so I clipped
all the leading/trailing zeroes and stitched each
disc back together using Cool Edit Pro, then re-cut
the tracks using CDWav. This source, thus, isn't
any different than the one I got; it's just a little
easier to listen to because the transitions actually
transit. --Matt.)

Subject: Tame for '74
I've always felt this was one of the more tame '74 shows, nothing much really going on here..although the Other One has it's moments. Donna is worse than usual on several numbers. Not a bad show but much more to dig into from '74 for sure.

Subject: Good.
Pretty average show, I guess. I think the first is the better set in terms of performance.

The band is playing pretty well the whole show, especially Keith. However, both Jerry and Bobby mess up the vocals and lyrics a number of times through out the show (The Other One for example). Donna's owl screech is a bit much on some of the tunes as well and it kinds ruins the moment at times.

The sound is real good but not great. But this show is certainly worth your time, especially the Truckin' > Nobody's jam > Other One > MLB jam > Row Jimmy. I believe it's the first Truckin' played on the wall of sound and you can tell the bands excited to play such a great song on such an incredible sound set up. Some great jams later they pull you back to reality with an excellent transition into Row Jimmy.

4 stars and totally worth a listen.

"Spanish lady she come to me, She beh beh b'dehdehdeh"?? Really Bobby???

'74 is probably my favourite year for the Dead and while this is a great show, it's not their best of the year. Donna actually kills a few of the tunes (not in colloquial sense of the word... she actually butchers them). Overall, it's a good listen though especially for the Truckin->Other One->MLB Jam which is excellent.
